10mins Gluten-free Breakfast: Healthy Fluffy Flour-less Pancakes




About: Happy Sagi~

Who says healthy eating can’t include pancakes?! Everyone should be able to enjoy a warm and fluffy pancake. Here goes a quick healthy breakfast recipe. An easy, gluten-free, dairy-free, high protein and low-calorie breakfast in a snap.

The only 3 necessary ingredients here are: eggs, banana and baking powder. Please use the ripe bananas (go for the ones that already have brown spots), you’ll get best results with this recipe!

These flourless pancakes (无麸质班戟) are just as moist and delicious. There is no flour in this recipe so they have very light texture. The taste and texture of the pancake is similar to the middle of french toast, or crepe. :)

Step 1: Ingredients.

1.5 Large Ripe Banana.
2 Large Eggs.
1/8 tsp Baking Powder.

Vanilla Extract.
Ground Cinnamon. (you could add whatever spices you like)

This makes about 2 small servings (10 - 12 tablespoons mixture). Double or even triple the recipe for the family, just use the ratio of 2 eggs:1.5 bananas. For example, for 4 people, you’d use 8 eggs and 6 bananas.

Step 2: Break Eggs and Mix It.

a. Crack open 2 eggs in a mixing bowl.
b. Stir in baking powder.

Step 3: Mash Bananas. a Bit Coarsely.

Mash the banana really well with a fork.

Step 4: Combine All Together.

a. Add the eggs, the vanilla/cinnamon (optional) to the mashed bananas.
b. Then whisk together with your eggs to combine.

Step 5: Pour Batter on a Hot Pan.

a. Spray your pan with cooking spray or grease.
b. Pour about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the batter for each mini pancakes over a medium-low heat.

* Note:
Try to make it small (easier to flip that way). The pancake with just eggs as a binders, so it is a little flimsier than the traditional pancake.

Step 6: Just Like You'd Cook a Normal Pancake.

a. Cook until the bottom appears set (1 - 2 minutes).
b. Flip with a spatula and cook another minute when the baking powder is activated.

Step 7: Served Inmediately.

a. Pile up a big stack of mini pancakes on your plate.
b. Top it all off with butter or some berries, seeds and nuts.
c. Drizzle with a little syrup (maple syrup or honey, if you like).

It makes simple, gluten-free and healthy breakfast. Light, lovely, and irresistible. These are less dense than a traditional pancake, making them feel almost like dessert. Enjoy! :)

Step 8: * the 2-ingredients Pancake.

If we exclude the baking powder, that will be 100% natural version. The outcome may feel like a banana omelet rather than a pancake as shown.

I just made some and they were very yummie! A little soft, so it was difficult to flip them over. Too much egg maybe? I might try to add ground almonds next time. I bet they would taste great with chocolate sauce, or caramel... Thank you for this recipe:-)

Oooo, I make such pancakes almost every day! Love them!

I never use baking powder though, but always 3 to 4 tablespoons of rolled oats. Makes them fluffy and 100% natural!

No, you don't even need to soak the oats.

You need 1 banana, 2 eggs and 3 or 4 tablespoons of regular rolled oats.
Mix it in blender or with a hand-held mixer for 5 to 10 seconds, and you are done! I always add a teaspoon of cinnamon too, by the way.

I also bake them in small-sized pancakes like you do, using coconut oil.

Soooooo delicious! Enjoy!

Erm.. Most probably these smell is generated from baking powder.

1. A mis-measured of baking powder can ruin your baking products. Too much baking powder causes the finished product taste bitter and sometimes metallic.

2. Make sure you are using the correct ingredient. Baking soda and powder are not interchangeable.

3. Is your stock of baking powder fresh? If not, get a new batch.

4. Baking powder tends to absorb other food odors. Are you storing your baking powder tightly, in a cool and dry place, away from odors (i.e. onion and garlic)? Don't use the refrigerator for baking powder and other dry ingredients like flour, sugar or baking soda.

Baking powder can be substituted with a mixture of baking soda (NaHCO3) and cream of tartar. Which in itself is baking soda without starch added. Presto, gluten free!
